Best Flooring for Soundproofing and Noise Reduction

Posted by: Emily Cantrill on July 11, 2024

Noise can be a major issue in many homes, whether it's the sound of footsteps, children playing, or external noise entering your home. At Poplar Carpets, we understand the importance of creating a peaceful living environment. That’s why we offer various flooring options designed to reduce noise and enhance comfort. Here are some of the best soundproofing solutions for your home.

1. Thick Carpets

One of the most effective ways to reduce noise in your home is by installing thick carpets. Carpets naturally absorb sound, and the thicker the carpet, the better the soundproofing. Plush, high-pile carpets are particularly effective at dampening noise. Our range of luxurious carpets not only provides excellent noise reduction but also adds warmth and comfort to your home.

2. Underlay

For even greater soundproofing, consider using high-quality carpet underlay. Underlay act as an additional barrier between the carpet and the floor, so the denser the better. At Poplar Carpets, we offer a variety of underlay options designed to enhance the soundproofing properties of your carpet, helping make your home quieter.

3. Soundproof Vinyl Flooring

Vinyl flooring has come a long way in recent years and now offers excellent soundproofing properties. Soundproof vinyl flooring includes an additional acoustic layer that helps to absorb sound. It’s a durable, water-resistant option that's perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, and high-traffic areas. 

4. Engineered Wood with Acoustic Underlay

If you prefer the look of wood flooring but need soundproofing, consider engineered wood paired with acoustic underlay. Engineered wood provides the aesthetic appeal of solid wood while offering better stability and sound reduction. When combined with an acoustic underlay, it significantly reduces noise, making it a great choice for multi-story homes and flats. 

5. Laminate Flooring with Soundproofing Features

Modern laminate flooring can also offer good soundproofing properties. Look for laminate flooring designed with built-in acoustic layers or pair it with soundproof underlays. This combination helps to reduce noise from foot traffic and other sources, providing a quieter environment without compromising on style.

6. Cork Flooring

Cork flooring is not only eco-friendly but also an excellent soundproofing material. Its unique cellular structure makes it naturally absorbent, reducing the transmission of sound. Cork flooring is ideal for bedrooms, living rooms, and home offices where noise reduction is essential. Plus, its soft, cushiony feel underfoot adds an extra layer of comfort.

Creating a peaceful, noise-free home is possible with the right flooring choices. At Poplar Carpets, we offer a variety of flooring options to suit every need and preference.
